A Bit About My Work
In my artwork, I combine multiple artistic mediums by experimenting with salvaged materials such as recycled vintage magazines, strips of used wood and scraps of torn photographs. Much like a cultural anthropologist, I sift through layers of repetitive shapes and gradations of material in order to reflect the passage of time. My paintings then evolve into detailed and textured storybooks that embody a yearning for the past, an image-based connection to the present and bold flashes of possible future worlds.
